A clean prop is an efficient prop

Oct 12, 2023

As marine growth accumulates on its blades, boat propellers markedly lose efficiency. SEAJET PellerClean from Lewis Marine is the simple, eco-friendly way to keep running gear sparkling clean for up to two years.


Biocide-free SEAJET PellerClean is safe to apply and won’t contaminate the environment like many competing products. It includes a zinc chromate-free epoxy primer that provides optimal adhesion. The silicone-based top coating creates an ultra-smooth, ultra-slippery surface that fouling cannot accumulate on. Ideal for propellers, shafts, struts, rudders and trim tabs, it’s equally effective whether used in fresh, brackish and saltwater.


As the vessel is underway, fouling simply slips off SEAJET PellerClean. For boats that are idle or cruise under five knots, a quick sponging will remove accumulated debris. A video detailing the simple application technique is at www.bit.ly/PellerClean.


The Small SEAJET PellerClean Kit from Lewis Marine comes with cans of primer base, hardener and clear coat to cover 7.5 sq. ft., and full instructions. The Big Kit covers 41 sq. ft.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
